Life’s a Beach on the Crafty Ribbons Challenge :-)

Hi all :-) I hope the sun is shining wherever you are ,,, it is here ,,, but I am soon heading off to get drenched in the UK !!! I hope the weather changes tomorrow and stays nice for at least 2 weeks :-)

This time on the Crafty Ribbons Challenge the owner of the store ‘Ali’ has chosen the theme ,,,


The prize on offer this week is this fabulous pack of ribbons !! :-)

I just HAD to use this Oh soo cute House Mouse image,, this is called Beach Bums :-),, aren’t they adorable This stamp is also available in an unmounted set from Joanna Sheen called Parasol.

I stamped the image twice so that I could tear the card along the shoreline and then pop the parasol over them to protect them from the blazing Sunshine ,,, don’t want em getting burnt !! :-) The papers are from Lawn Fawn and I used an EK Success border punch and some Robins Nest Dew Drops. I cut out the bucket and spade on the Silhouette Cameo and finished with some fab Infusion Ribbon and a Rum Punch button for the sun from Crafty Ribbons :-)

I finished the inside using stamps from the unmounted set.

I must say that I do like the smaller stamps on these sets but often the larger ones are reduced in size and are more diffy to colour, so I often ended up buying the wooden versions too.

Thanks for looking, the DT have made some gorgeous creations so hop on over to the Crafty Ribbons Challenge to see them :-)

Fabulous card, and you can't beat house mouse to make you grin. A perfect antidote to this dreary weather in the UK, and a perfectly cheery summer image.

Aww super cute, Lols.
We have just moved our hot-tub and found some tiny empty mouse nests underneath it - so I imagine this is where our mice are now - away on their summer hols. :-)
